Fiona's Comments

Swiggett has a unique touch and intensely appealing pianism, and a voice with a depth similar to that of Abbey Lincoln (there are other voices that come closer, but the earthiness is equivalent). Clever and fun listening.

About the Album

For her second OA2 release, Seattle pianist, composer and vocalist Nelda Swiggett invited veteran Seattle Symphony violist Rachel Swerdlow and cellist Walter Gray to augment her long time trio, with bassist Chris Symer and drummer Byron Vannoy, for a collection of original compositions. Creatively unfolding melodies with supple harmonies create unique soundscapes and the illusion of a larger ensemble.
